Safe container to dose NO3: PO4-X with?

Hello all
I read that I should not use an acrylic container for NO3: PO4-X as it may crack it...I know I can use the bottle it comes in but its opaque and I cannot see how much is left in the bottle so I would rather use something else.
Is anyone using acrylic and if not, can I use glass or a clear plastic bottle like an old coke bottle? And ideas would be appreciated!

Anything that's safe for vinegar and alcohol should be fine. That's what's in that product. A clear glass bottle should be fine, for example. HDPE probably would last a while, but I'd be cautious.

I use a oxo round glass cylinder and trap the lid with a John guest fitting.

If you are automatically dosing it, you might be diluting nopox. When I diluted 1:4 with rodi, I was able to have it my acrylic Neptune ddr without issues. Never tried it without diluting.
